Does twisting the transformer make a difference?

Is the noise so bad that it will be audible when the amp is installed in the vehicle?

well i cant tell if twisting does anything i have to have the bottom plate on to hold down the fets. The noise if its installed you cannot here it if the bass is turned up. but test benching it with power supply and battery while the amp is in front of me i can here the whine.

This is common for a lot of switching power supplies and doesn't generally indicate that there is a problem.

If you're going to work on PPI amps, you need to build clamps so that you can work on them with the cover removed.

Yes that is on my list to do. Ive just been infatuated with these amps i like the way they sound. i know for sure that it is coming from the toroid. Should i list some pics?
